Extensive water supply planning efforts show that our community needs further development of water supplies to have sufficient water resources for the future and for drought. There also are current constraints and insecurity in our existing water supply resources —requiring that supplemental supplies and additional supplies are available.
Existing water sources continue to be challenged and are all dependent on the climatic conditions of our area. New regulations, drought, and climate change continue to threaten the reliability of our water supply. Rates fund key projects that will diversify our water supplies, including adding a drought-resilient supply. More information regarding future supply and demand projections is outlined in the 2020 Comprehensive Water Resources Report.
